Editorial Reviews

Prepare yourself for a vintage science fiction adventure film you will never forget, as the sultry Stella Star (Caroline Munro) and her alien sidekick Akton (Marjoe Gortner) team up with robot lawman Elle (Judd Hamilton) on a high adventure to save the universe. It is a cosmic mash-up of daring escapes, wild special effects, beautiful women in sexy space bikinis and nonstop action on a dozen alien worlds. Roger Corman presents the ultimate European space opera, a colorful and dazzling chase through the galaxy that will blast you through the blackness of a hundred million nights!

Kicked into hyperspace by a maelstrom of ingenious low-budget special effects and the talents of Academy Award winning composer John Barry, the film was a smash hit in 1979 when the wild and humorous sci-fi adventure hit theatres. For over 30 years the film has gained a massive cult following, inspiring devoted legions of Crashers, fan clubs and more. Now, for the first time on Blu-ray, the film is presented in a deluxe two-disc special edition.

Customer Reviews

Not even a good "bad" movie to watch.
S. Fisher
It's not multi-layered, not complex, not social satire, it's just fun, cheesy sci-fi with bad effects, bad acting, a terrible plot, and I love every minute of it.
jsharbour
Boring..... I watched 10 minutes of it and stopped.

Luigi Cozzi's Star Crash (a/k/a The Adventures of Stella Star) is one of my all-time favorite movies. Usually dismissed as a cheap Italian Star Wars knock-off, it's actually much, much more than that: it's a cheap Italian knock-off of all three Flash Gordon serials, Barbarella, hundreds of pulp space operas and comic books, and a half-dozen Ray Harryhausen movies.

It literally has everything: a scantily clad heroine, a comic relief robot, stop-motion monsters, lightsabre duels, space amazons, space troglodytes, a galactic villain with a beer belly, ray guns, ludicrous spaceship miniatures, beach ball planets, blinking Christmas tree light stars, an eclectic international cast that includes Joe Spinell, David Hasselhoff, Marjoe Gortner, Robert Tessier, and an apparently stoned-out-of-his-mind Christopher Plummer... and a marvelous musical score by Academy Award-winning composer John Barry!

I've long lamented that there wasn't a quality, authorized DVD edition of this personal favorite available, and the thought that in a few days I'll have a high-definition, widescreen copy on Blu-Ray is exciting. Ever since I read director Cozzi's article about the origins of and the making of the film in Future magazine (anyone remember that companion mag to Starlog, later known as Future Life?) back in '77, I've been fascinated with the film, and when I finally saw it on VHS with some friends around 1990, I couldn't believe just how much giddy, shameless, stupid fun it was.

There isn't much I don't love about the movie, to be honest. Caroline Munro is gorgeous, the special effects are psychedelic, the characters so ridiculous and earnest... it's pure, rainy Saturday afternoon bliss, and vastly more entertaining than ANY of the Star Wars prequels or the mind-numbingly boring and overrated Avatar.

A piddly 3 stars as average rating? C'mon Basic Instinct 2 has the same rating (at least as I'm writing this), and it's nowhere near as fun (or any fun at all, actually)! I don't know that I have anything to really add to the reviews that tout this as extremely entertaining camp; I can tell you that I only became aware of this film in September 2010 when it came out on DVD and Blu-ray. I read the reviews from the DVD reviewing sites and decided that, being a lover of science fiction and of campy movies, I would love it. So I bought it sight unseen and have become completely obsessed by it. A framed poster is now in my living room, I check ebay periodically for other Starcrash merchandise, and have seen it numerous times. Now, I'm not saying that everyone will love it in the (possibly maniacal) way I do, but I will say there's a very good chance those who enjoy science fiction and cheesy movies will at least like it. And there are numerous positives to a film that I may be making sound completely disposable: the score by John Barry is frequently beautiful, the often colorful cinematography looks great (especially on the Blu-ray) and it has David Hasselhoff! You can't lose...

This film simply lacked "true" space opera common sense and seemed from the outset to be nothing but an awful Star Wars (1977) copy. I was hesitant to go as high as 5 stars but I suppose the basic premise of the film is acceptable enough, it is an enjoyably awful, cheese space film.

I find Starcrash (1978) very stirring and exciting. At its heart, it is a close relative of the klutzy Italian giallo films, a swashbuckling Star epic full of political space color, ridiculous special effects, dumb intrigue, and moral danger in space. Christopher Plummer emerges as a memorable villain, and David Hasselhoff's presence is enough to further increase the mystique of the Hasselhoff cheese legacy. I sense some unbalance in this movie. The script is so bad that it makes Marjoe Gortner and Joe Spinell look lame but Caroline Munro wearing a bikini is hot.

Starcrash (1978) is underrated cheese and more imaginative than most cheese space films ever shot.

Not only does this movie entertain kids of all ages but it holds up well to repeat viewings and earns the right to be called a "cheese space classic".

In 1977, Star Wars was a critical and commercial hit! It made movies fun again! In the 1970's, sci-fi movies were dark, violent, downbeat, low budget, and nightmarish! Filmmakers were trying to maximize any sci-fi project that they had the rights to. Luigi Cozzi's Starcrash(1979) was one of the Star Wars clones. The Emperor(Christopher Plummer) forces sexy smuggler Stella Star(Caroline Munro) to find his son. Our heroes also have to battle the megalomaniacal Zarth Arn(Joe Spinell). The film is so bad, it's good. It has a sense of fun and adventure that the overrated Battlestar Galactica remake lacked. An Amazon Queen yells, "I'LL HAVE MY REVENGE!" and we'll never find out what she wants revenge for. The robot police officer Elle has a "Southern" accent looped over him! It's like that scene in Sleeper(1973) where Jackie Mason's voice is looped over a robot sales clerk! Akton(Marjoe Gortner) claims that three space fighters are attacking their ship and only one can be seen in the VFX shots!
British starlet Caroline Munro plays smuggler Stella Star and American English is looped over her accent. Munro played a sensual femme fatale in the James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me(1977). Speaking of James Bond, the late John Barry composed the music score for Starcrash. It gives heart and soul to a film packed with 1970's cheese! A young David Hasselhoff(Knight Rider, Baywatch) plays Prince Simon. We get to see Marjoe Gortner engage in a light saber duel with two stop motion robots! In one scene, Stella Star almost freezes to death on a planet covered in snow. I wonder if George Lucas got even by having the Rebels hide on the ice planet Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back(1980)? I like the scene where a capsule smashes through a space station window and the room doesn't depressurize! Starcrash is a flawed movie, but it's fun to watch with a case of beer!
